Pulling Buddha's Finger

Beijing beckons with Buddha's finger - World -
"A finger bone of the Buddha has gone on display in Hong Kong, the latest peace offering from Beijing in an unorthodox propaganda war aimed at reconciling the territory to its rule.

Saffron-robed monks escorted the finger off an aircraft that had brought it from Xianyang in Shaanxi province on Tuesday. "
Somehow I think the Buddha would find the action amusing and the motive appaling.

Just my $.02.
